Katrina Kaif should have been the new Doctor Who

Neha Dhupia IIFA 2017

Neha Dhupia IIFA 2017

Hosted by Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan and producer-director Karan Johar, the ceremony, which celebrates the achievements of Bollywood in different cities across the world, is a three-day extravaganza that started from July 13 and is being held at the iconic MetLife Stadium in NY.

This is the first time Alia Bhatt is attending IIFA awards and the actress also won Style Icon award.

Over the years now, the traditional IIFA green carpet has gained synonymy with gowns and flowy silhouettes for the ladies and well cut dapper suits for the men.

For IIFA Rocks 2017 night, Alia was snapped spinning off an ethereal charm with a classic pale cream coloured voluminous Manish Malhotra lehenga featuring intricately embroidered floral work, Alia Bhatt pulled off this look with a minimal makeup of well-defined eyes, nude pink lips and an elaborate updo.

Now, how is that possible, unless Katrina had any of her doppelganger along at New York City?

Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput recently completed two years of their marriage. They have an adorable baby girl Misha Kapoor together already, who will turn a year older in August.

The new pledge will record and track those individual commitments and measure their cumulative effect on reducing emissions. But in abandoning the accord, Trump said the federal government would not honor those pledges, which were non-binding.

Actress Katrina Kaif took the stage and grooved on songs like "Afghan jalebi", "Galti se mistake", "Dhoom machale" and "Kaala chashma".

Couldn't make it to NYC to catch all the green carpet action in person?

She further said, "It's great that IIFA is going live". Neerja and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil won three awards each.

The actor who redefines grandeur!

The five-hour awards show at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford - where the glittering Manhattan skyline was visible from the parking lot - was a riot of colour, glitz and stunning dance routines. The actor swept back home the Best Actor Award for his phenomenal performance as Tommy Singh in the highly controversial film 'Udta Punjab'.
